Kelly and I attended this lovely evening which included two songs performed by Colin Meloy (of the Decemberists). It also included a talk by Calvin Trillin, a poem by Zach Schomburg, and a poem by Bella Trent, who had an amazing voice. Also Liz Gilbert* spoke on creativity. AND because we were among the first 700 to purchase tickets we each got a copy of Elizabeth Gilbert's** Signature of All Things. It was even autographed. It was a good evening.
ps. Authors (at least the ones from out of town that spoke) really like to come to Portland. Do you think they were just humoring us?
